Kids Classes

Welcome to the Phoenix Quest Center’s Program’s for Kids!

We use To-Shin Do martial arts training to teach children how to be powerful and aware so they can live a safe, happy and fulfilling life.

To-Shin Do martial arts adventure-based leadership training teaches how to stand up for what is right, how to take care of others in challenging moments, how to look your best – best fitness, best posture, best health – so you stand out in a crowd as a person who matters!

We help you teach your child all the lessons dearest to your heart as a parent.

We use To-Shin Do martial arts training to teach honest confidence, about the value of teamwork, about reaching for a challenging goal, about encouraging others, about focus and about the life-long love of healthy fitness.

We offer a sure path to youth empowerment and leadership

With each seemingly routine but truly magical class, your child practices the art of winning – paying attention, building strength, achieving goals, associating with people who seek balance, expanding their ability to take care of others, and nurturing a sense of community and connectedness.

Real self esteem is earned through personal struggle, not awarded as a present

Children today need to feel more secure in the world, and also learn they are ultimately responsible for creating that security for themselves and others. To learn this big life lesson, they must learn to keep going through things that would hold them back. In a systematic, safe and fun way, the Phoenix Quest Center will help your child explore and stretch all the physical, mental and winning spirit boundaries.

We transform young lives by teaching children to avoid negative forces while developing their strengths – creating leaders and peacemakers dedicated to using their training to benefit the community.

Phoenix Quest Center provides the opportunity and the skills to overcome any obstacle on the path to success by teaching:

  • LEADERSHIP – How to take charge so that everyone can win
  • FOCUS – Eyes and mind unfailingly on the right target
  • PERSEVERANCE – Sticking with a noble but challenging goal
  • CONFIDENCE – Positive ways to win no matter what life dishes out
  • COMPASSION – The truly powerful extend care for all
  • RESPECT – The importance of treating others with dignity
  • CONFLICT RESOLUTION – How to make and keep peace
  • FITNESS – Life-long love of healthy vibrant living
  • TEAMWORK – Bringing out the best in everyone

Kids think we are cool in our black belts, but parents know we are their best allies in helping them to raise and empower their children.

Better health, higher fitness, more mental and emotional clarity, a lot of new friendships, and many adventure experiences await your child.

Watching ClassIf my child learns self-defense techniques, won’t he be tempted to use his skill to become a bully himself?

That could be a possibility in a poor quality school run by a questionable instructor. That’s why it is so important to enroll your child in our professionally run school with our caring and inspired teachers. We emphasize the beauty and power of being a protector instead of a predator. We teach children how to help others feel good around them by instilling our children with knowledge of why some kids choose bullying as their way to get attention and feel important. Experience has shown that the more skilled the true martial artist, the less likely they will jump to physical solutions for disagreements. They win just by carrying themselves like a winner.

Maybe we should enroll our children in a cheaper program to see if they like martial arts, and then transfer to the professional SKH Quest Center later if it looks like the kids want to train for real mastery?

A discount program run by hobbyists is likely to be poorly designed and unskillfully presented, and will quickly drain your child’s enthusiasm. Naturally, they will want to quit, and there will be no way to convince them that a new school will be a better experience. You will lose the opportunity for your child to get the real and lasting benefits of authentic martial arts empowerment. Start with the best school right now from the beginning.

Yes, but my child has a habit of getting bored and wanting to quit things after doing them for awhile…

Then right now is the perfect time to teach your child the new habit of planning ahead for the rewards that come with success and then sticking to that promise. We’ll help you make that needed transition in your child’s life.

Would my child have to compete against and beat others to advance?

No. SKH Quest To-Shin Do trained teachers in padded armor simulate assaults to let students test themselves under high pressure. As a self-defense school, we train for situations very different from a contest ring. Our goal is not to challenge competitors, but to develop the protector skills and know-how to establish peace when others might choose bullying or violence – skills very different from those needed to win a prize in a fighting contest.

How do I know if yours is the best school for my child?

The best possible way is to try us out and see what we deliver. Phone us today at 480-756-2323 and we will set up an appointment for you to visit the school with your child and meet our instructors. We will ask you some questions about what you want your child to get out of martial arts training. We will ask a few questions about who you are, what is important to you, and who your child is. If we all feel that we are the school for you, we will invite your child to try a few classes with us with no obligation or strings. (On the other hand, if it seems clear we are not the just-right school for you, we will give you a list of some other schools in the area that may be better suited to your goals.)
